Re: Should you carry a round in the chamber?
There is a difference between carrying a loaded gun and carrying one not safe or unsuitable,I have 4 I can cc with 3 are loaded ,1 is not.
Sat night special from years ago sa loaded in pocket is no place for it to be.
It doesnt bother me at all , pa63 is a loaded firearm da pull and boom,keep it in detent not on safe.1911 a1 sure,1903,1908,tokarov,beretta 1934 and all those close in nature no.
That does not mean you couldnt carry one just not cond 1,of course others more suitable,may or may not be available,many on ss cannot afford a kimber.
My primary prior to the pa63 was a 32 acp Llama 1911 mini in all but a sear block and the 32 being a blowback from 380 up recoil operated or some are.I was cc it with a rd in the chamber and on half cock and a leo showed me how to do the draw and rack in one motion,so went to that since was actually as quick or even quicker than cocking the thing.
To be honest it with a grip safety if i had a holster with a strap that came in between the hammer and block id be tempted to carry it cond 1.Mostly mute since its place was taken by the pa63 most of the time.
